Universitatea Columbia din New York a anunțat câștigătorii Premiilor Pulitzer, la cea de-a 101-a ediție. Ne bucurăm să regăsim pe listă și o parte dintre investigațiile internaționale Panama Papers, proiect la care au colaborat și jurnaliștii români de la RISE Project (pe care i-am premiat și noi la Superscrieri în 2016 pentru seria de investigații din țara noastră).

Am compilat toate linkurile către materialele premiate, ca să le aveți ușor la îndemână pentru perioada următoare. Sperăm să vă inspire, mai ales din perspectiva faptului că jurnalismul de calitate merită susținut și încurajat.
Și să nu uităm să fim și noi mai atenți cu autorii noștri buni și la cum putem crește micile noastre Premii Superscrieri, la cea de-a VII-a ediție, la toamnă.
